Bhai Jatinder Singh Nimana stated that “as a result of widening the road, the Sikhs said their homes were destroyed and police entered the Gurdwara Sahib with their shoes and charged on the peacefully standing Sikhs.”
The Sikligar Sikhs have also stated that no one came to their rescue or support. They cited that the Sikhs who think they are higher caste then them refused to come to their aid.
